Ron, our beloved mentor, friend and colleague has passed away on May 7th, 2016. This presentation will follow his life and remarkable achievements. It will describe his work and original developments in three major fields of his interest: his early inventive work on vacuum ultraviolet laser radiation; specialty fiber-optics for laser transmission, especially high-power short-pulse broadband laser delivery of free-electron laser; and up to his latest work on Photobiomodulation. The authors will share their personal experience working with Ron - a Nobel and creative person, however, very humble.
